In celebration of 100 years of Jewish Immigrant Aid Services in Canada, the OJA and JIAS Toronto invite you to visit Refuge Canada Tent, a traveling exhibit created by the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21, and Love the Stranger, a complementary exhibit curated by the Ontario Jewish Archives.

Refuge Canada Tent was designed to resemble a typical shelter used in refugee camps today. It introduces Canada’s place in the global refugee crises, illuminating the challenges that refugees face while investigating Canada’s historical track-record of responding to refugees.

Honouring 100 years of JIAS, the Ontario Jewish Archives’ Love the Stranger is a complementary exhibit to Pier 21’s Refuge Canada Tent, recalling the specific history of Canadian Jews as new immigrants and refugees over the last century – we too were “strangers in a strange land” – and the central role that JIAS has played throughout its history in welcoming and supporting Jewish and non-Jewish refugees from around the world.
